Dermal Needling

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, dermal needling uses tiny ultra-thin needles to stimulate natural collagen production, reorder pigmentation and strengthen barrier function.

Dermal needling involves gently piercing the skin with superficial ultra-thin needles to stimulate natural collagen reproduction, allowing fine channels to be created in the skin.

These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin stimulates repair and enhances the natural healing process that is initiated by the micro-trauma of the needles. Natural growth factors are produced by the skin, resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin, which continues for several months, such that the results improve as time goes by.

Benefits of Dermal Needling

  • Tightens, lifts and rejuvenates skin
  • Reduces acne scars, surgical scars and other scarring
  • Improves wrinkles and fine lines
  • Minimises pore size
  • Improves stretch marks
  • Virtually painless with little to no downtime

Dermal needling promotes scarless healing and natural collagen reproduction.

It is similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but with fewer side effects and downtime.

At SkinBox we use a Bomtech™ needling pen device, which is much safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin micro needling rollers, because of its unique vertical micro needling technology.

The Bomtech™ pen device has 7 speed levels with oscillation ranging from 80/sec to 125/sec. With a 12 needle cartridge, up to 1,500 microchannels can be created per second. The needle length, and therefore the depth of treatment, can be adjusted between 0 – 2mm. 

When the needle tip makes contact with the skin, the needles create tiny puncture in the skin’s surface, causing micro-trauma, and inducing an immune response, and subsequently, the creation of new healthy collagen. The punctures also act as micro-channels that carry topical nutrients used during the treatment deep into skin layers for an increased effect. Because the needles oscillate as quickly as they do, the tip of the one device easily *glides* across the skin, without catching or causing any dermal tearing, reducing pain and patient downtime.

The Bomtech™ takes all the advantages of older devices, leaving behind any shortcomings, and incorporates it all into an automated device that is able to produce over 1,500 micro holes in the skin per second, making the Bomtech™ more effective than dermal rollers, dermal stamps, and various other automated needling devices. Of note, both the needling handpiece and the cartridges are ARTG listed (ARTG 337010 & 362550). 

With Bomtech™, we can effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue.

The mechanism of injury is a natural process, which makes dermal needling a holistic approach to skin therapy.

All Dermal Therapists at SkinBox have certified advanced training in Dermal Needling, as in order to achieve optimum results it is important to understand the science behind the process and to be able to modify treatment plans for a patient’s specific needs.
